Subj:   Re: Defaults for Date and Time columns
 
From:   Russ Huntley

If you are trying to do this as an afterthought to a large table, and you want to avoid having every row in the table updated, you can first add the column with a default of null, and then alter the column to a default of date.

Alter table xxx
add Inserted_Date Date Default null

and then...

Alter table xxx
add Inserted_Date Default Date format 'YYYY-MM-DD'

The same should work for time.
